[Partha Banerjee Dubai] : Poor Maintenance of Dialysis in Africaby Partha Banerjee Partha Banerjee Dubai
Lack of funding for maintenance dialysis is arguably the single most important barrier to the provision of maintenance dialysis in sub-Saharan Africa. In most parts of the region, there are no reimbursements or government subsidies for dialysis and national health insurance programs do not exist. According to Partha Banerjee Dubai, this has led to a situation where patients have to pay out-of-pocket for dialysis. On a continent where up to 80% the population live on less than 2.5 dollars per day and a session of hemodialysis costs as much as USD 100 – 200 most patients with ESRD have to rely on financial support from their extended families, religious organizations and philanthropists to be able to pay for dialysis says partha banerjee dubai . Even where government subsidies or payments are available to cover dialysis, many patients with ESRD are denied access to long-term dialysis because of rationing policies that limit the provision of dialysis to the patient with few co-morbidities.
